By Sam Mwaura/Samrack Media
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Neema PCEA Church Lowell, Kenyan community in N.England, churches, friends, pastors and other members of the Kenyan Community for their generous contribution last Sunday March 19 2017 that enabled us to raise over $39,233.00 for burial funds of the late Joan Njeri Gitau (JoJo) of PCEA Neema Church Lowell,Massachusetts.
The Bible say that one can put a thousand flight but two can put ten thousand flight . what we saw last Sunday sent to us a clear message that together we can accomplish more than when we work alone.
It is time that we stop the division and strive for unity in the body of Christ. You will all agree with me that what we saw last Sunday was a gathering of strong and powerful Kenyan people ,who were simple and very ordinary who were like -minded and loved to give with all their hearts .
Once again we saw the elements that join us together of love , fellowship and unity being revived .
If we want to see the power of God manifested in our Kenyan community in N. England we must be united and in one accord based upon the unity that the spirit of God brings. Be blessed.
The Memorial Services was presided by Neema PCEA Church Pastor Rev.Dr. Karimi Mumbui,The (Emcee)Master of ceremonies was Mr Stephen Kanyoni and the Thanksgiving tribute was given by Pastor Stanley Mungai.
